Coastal Elopement in the Dunes of Cap Ferret, France
With a backdrop as gorgeous as this seaside location in the South of France and a color palette pulling from its natural elements, this elopement elevates serenity and romance to the max. Fine Art Curation members Véronique Chesnel and Oui Mon Coeur worked beautifully together to capture and design this intimate gathering and with the earthy and subtle floral arrangements by Le Coeur Sauvage, this is one for the eloping lovers out there...
From Véronique Chesnel: "We wanted to share a feeling of freedom to break with the current context and to let brides and grooms consider that intimate and genuine weddings in nature can be a great idea.
Our true lovers celebrate their love in the famous dunes of Cap Ferret, in Bassin d'Arcachon, South West France. In this natural and preserved area surrounded by ocean, Eugénie and Valentin first meet on the traditional little and flat boat called Pinasse, traditionally used for fishing and oyster farming.
Then, in an etheral pale blue dress designed by Aude Violette Creation and a simple white pants and skirts, they finally exchange their vows crafted by Beautifully Lost Studio on the wild "plage du Truc Vert", with the wind and the sounds of the waves as the witness of their love. After this emotional moment, Valentin offers his wife the cute puppy dog she was dreaming about.
The intimate table have been designed by Ajna from Oui mon Coeur and flowered by Faith from Le Coeur Sauvage. We fully wanted to merge our surroundings, to make only one with this gorgeous landscape that explain the choice of colors and the flowers. The same choice have been taken for the hairstyle from Alexia Bigaud Morin who added an honesty flower to the ponytail."
